Well, we didn't get her passport application in. They didn't accept the evidence that DH couldn't come. I'm afraid we'll never make it in time because the command said we had to have our passports BEFORE he could even leave his training station! Well why are they just giving us all of these papers now? I'm so confused and sad. I don't think we'll ever get there. I've filled in tens of forms and we keep going in circles. Nobody can help us figure out what we need, when, and what has to be done first. Everone keeps telling us, "Well why don't you have..." and I keep saying, "I didn't know I needed it. I'm new to all of this. It's our first duty station, our first PCS, my husband is not even done with AIT yet."
Please, someone, help us. Nobody at Ft. Lewis can help me until I'm on his orders, but I can't get on his orders until... I don't know what. I have to have all of us screened, then they have to send a form to Germany, then to Texas, then here, THEN we can book our move.
By then, DH will be gone and I'll be doing it all myself. I am literally crying right now thinking about it. I haven't eaten all day because I have NO TIME to eat, my kids did not nap, NOTHING is happening but this move and yet... even the move isn't happening.
Is it like this all the time with the army?
The one thing I thought it would be is organized.
